Typewriter Topics October 1923 Historical Number
Much of this material was reprinted later under three different titles. It is useful to distinguish them from this original version:
The long "Condensed History of the Writing Machine" article was reprinted in book form in 1923 as "The Typewriter: History & Encyclopedia." (NY and London: Business Equipment Publishing Co., 1923). 114 pp.
The 1923 book-format version was reprinted again in 1981 under the title "Collector's Guide to Antique Typewriters." (Arcadia, CA: Post-Era Books, 1981.) ISBN: 911160-86-8. 125pp + index. Post's reprint contained an additional Foreword and also numerous advertisements reprinted from other contemporary magazines (that is, the reprinted ads in it are not those of this original "Typewriter Topics" October 1923 number).
The 1923 book-format version was reprinted again in 2000 by Dover Publications under the title The Typewriter: An Illustrated History. ISBN-10: 0-486-1237-7. 128pp.
This is a scan of an old photocopy of this issue of this magazine. Its image quality is terrible; this is due to the photocopy, not the digitization. The photocopy was scanned at 600dpi RGB. The version presented here has been reduced 50 percent to an effective 300dpi and converted to JPEG images. A full-resolution version (which isn't really any better) is hosted at: http://www.circuitousroot.com/artifice/letters/typewriters/books/typewriter-topics-1923/index.html
